A shocking and poignant piece of poetry, drenched in a dreadful truth. Sometimes, it is the people that are left behind who need to take a long hard look at themselves and ask honestly: did we do enough?
Thank you so much for taking the time to read and comment, Brenda :) I appreciate it!

Even though this is short, in my mind it could hold many different meanings, because when i hear the fall, i think of suicide, depression, rock bottom. Which in turn could all lead to the same thing. But this is an extremely powerful write because it is well written to me. You make an impact with such simple wording. And it could be about oneself, or a close person in someones life. Either way. Great!
I like how open the title was to interpretation. I clicked expecting to read a poem about the Fall/Autumn. This was very effective in stirring some heavy feelings in me, as the theme is quite close to my heart. It's heartbreaking to think that for some people, this is the reality they are facing. Like at this very moment.
